The Devils Must Improve Their Offense And It Starts with Their Defensemen

Follow me on Twitter: @a_chauvancy23 It’s no surprise to you when I say the Devils have trouble scoring. They have a 44% goals for percentage, 3rd worst in the league, and are only averaging 1.75 goals per 60 minutes at even-strength, which is second worst.
